I mailed a package to my friend in Kentucky last Saturday. She received it safe and sound yesterday so I thought I’d share pictures of what I sent to her. The soaker is for her 8-month old girl. Yarn: Cascade 220 (green and brick-red) and Sensations Kashmira (aqua – discontinued).
Originally I was going to make a face on the back side but didn’t have the right colors of yarn to finish it.
I also sent her very own pair of Musica Mitts. She loves music and commented on the mitts I made for Mr. Aitch so I thought I’d make a pair for her.
Knit Picks Stroll in fingering weight yarn: Midnight Heather (dark navy), Firecracker Heather (red), Pea Pod (green), and Dusk (blue). Size 2.5 US needles. Total stitches: 8520
Whoa! 8520 stitches!!
And you didn’t lose count when counting. The soakers and gloves are great. The colors are great.
I’m going blind with a pair of sz 2 needles for socks. I’ve finished 7 inches of cuff and my knitting group is tonight. I’m learning the “heel.” Wish me luck. I come here, to you, for inspiration. Then I am overwhelmed with your capacity to produce so much. You are a walking, breathing, knitting machine!!! I love it!
8520 stitches! And every single one of them is appreciated. I wore them outside yesterday evening and they worked great!
I love those mitts. I really really want to make some. Your soaker is adorable too!
